As any fan of 'Dancing with the Stars' knows, the finals of that popular show will be next week on ABC and WTOK-TV.
But another big ballroom dancing event is coming to Meridian Dec. 4.
The third annual 'Dancing Like the Stars' is a fundraiser for Multi-County Community Service Agency.
Local celebrities will be taking to the dance floor to show what they can do. The money raised will go toward getting a new home for MCCSA. The agency's government funds are only for client services.
"During this time of year, this season of year when people are interested in giving to worthwhile causes and identifying organizations that they can give to that are really making a difference in the community, what a wonderful opportunity and what a wonderful organization to give to that makes a difference," said Larry Nicks of Inspiration Communications Group, which is helping with publicity.
Tickets for 'Dancing Like the Stars' at the frank Cochran Center are $50 each. The deadline to buy them is Nov. 26. The cost is tax-deductible. Contact Mary Atterberry at 601-938-2772 for information on tickets, or if you're interested in dancing for the fundraiser.
